Does anyone know if there is a student attendance report that shows the comments that have been put in? Thanks.

Hi @JaneR10,

 

Good Day! Thanks for posting in the community.

 

We do not have an Attendance report that will include the comments but you can export the comments from the attendance table. Follow the steps below to export the comments from the Attendance table.

 

1. Go to Start Page

 

2. Navigate to Start Page > System > DDE and select the Attendance table (Table = Attendance)

3. Search for ''Att_Comment'' and other required attributes from ''Search Attendance'' dropdown.

 

4. Click on submit and export.

 

We encourage you to submit this as an enhancement request on our Ideas Portal.

Hi @abeecham,

 

Thank you for posting in PowerSchool Community!

 

To assist you further, would you please confirm if you were referring to PowerSchool SIS? If yes and you are still unable to see an option for 'System' on the left after logging in, we recommend working with the Designated Support Contact within your school district who should be able to help you navigate through this.

Hi @AmyB43

 

If there is a comment Associated to Attendance, then we recommend following the first 2 steps as Paritosh has mentioned above and then continue with Current table: Attendance, Search: != Att_Comment, StudentID: XXXX, Att_Date: >= XX/XX/XXXX

 

Then Check Search records in XXX School > Click Search XXX records in this Table > Click Table to review the records.

 

Now Click Export > Export the Fields required and then choose Att_Comment from the drop down to export Comments.

 

Let us know if this information was helpful or if you have any further queries.

Attendance(157) is no longer an option. Do you know of another way to get a report of the attendance comments?

Hi @shinspeter,

 

If you have access to Direct Database Export under System Administrator > Page and Data Management, you should be able to select Current Table as Attendance, it should be towards the top of the list.

Hi @shinspeter,

 

The Tables that you view are defined by Security Permissions set by your PowerSchool SIS Administrator.

If you think that you should have access to the Attendance table in DDE, you will want to reach out to your school or district's PowerSchool SIS Administrator or Designated Support Contact to request the access.
